Day 2 — Something you love about yourself.
Does it have to be just one thing??? HAHA. Totally. Joking.
Not to sound conceited, but there are a lot of things I love about myself. But, I guess that in itself stems from the one thing I love most about myself.
My sunny disposition.
I am [almost] always smiling. And I love that. I love to smile. I love the feel of a smile. I love the power of a smile.
And I laugh at [almost] everything. Whether it be a giggle, a chuckle, or a full-blown, out-loud, raucous belly laugh. I find so many things funny because I have this enormously wide sense of humor. When people get my humor, I laugh with them laughing with me; when they don’t, I laugh at the awkwardness of the fact that I’m the only one laughing. And even still, I laugh.
That feeds into my strength. Even through the darkest moments of my life, I have still found a way to smile or laugh. True, there have been times when I’m faking it, to convince people I’m okay. And in the beginning I would feel guilty for smiling or laughing, in the middle of such a sad time. However, I’ve come to realize, there will be plenty of times where I am deeply sad and I’m crying and grieving, so I need to live for those moments when I’m not. Knowing that it is so easy for me to genuinely laugh or smile, get me through those horribly difficult times, because I know that, especially for me, there will be another smile.
It also feeds into my caring for others. Nobody wants to be the only one smiling. Sometimes, it kind of feels like I’m rubbing it in or doing something wrong if no one around me is smiling. I always feel the need to be there for people. If there is anything I can do to make someone happier or make their life any easier, that’s reason enough to do it.
The truth is, I love my sunny disposition.
What do you love about yourself? I wanna know =]
